There has been a fortification in Rechtenstein since the Middle Ages . The gentlemen from Stain ran a flour mill and an oil mill there and also had the right to compulsory mills . From 1903 the mill was rebuilt, in 1905 the power station was put into operation and supplied the electricity for the wood pulp mill, which delivered its products to the paper mill in Scheer . The Rechtenstein field railway was built for transport between the factory and the train station . The wood pulp factory was in operation until 1993. The power plant continues to operate and feeds into the EnBW network , the factory buildings are used as workshops.
In 2016, the construction of the weir system and expansion of the power plant with a fourth turbine began. This is intended to increase the standard energy capacity to 2.3 million kilowatt hours. At the start, the completion date was planned for Easter 2017, but the end date in November 2016 was postponed to Whitsun 2017 due to the lack of heavy drilling equipment. At the end of July 2017 the Rechtenstein hydropower plant was completed and put back into operation.
The old mill had several undershot water wheels . The power plant has three Francis shaft turbines with 9 m³ / s each from 1905; Control, generator and gearbox were renewed in 1975. The drop height is 1.8 m. The standard energy capacity of the power plant is 1.8 GWh , the installed capacity is 280 kW .
In July 2011, a green electricity filling station for Park & Charge members was opened at the train station , which is supplied by the hydropower system and the company-owned PV system.
